When looking at the Tommy Stockel Arrangements, one becomes instantly overwhelmed by the excessive use of multiple materials.
In his installation called ‘Proportional Material Arrangement for Two Rooms,’ the artist has created a sculptural piece of art that is actually made up of many individual pieces purposefully arranged into an intricate pattern. If you are just looking at a photograph of one of these arrangements, it would be easy to think that it was Photoshopped as each piece is in the perfect spot in a continuous pattern. In his ‘Structured Studio Situation’ installation, there is no clearly evident pattern, but the elements still come together to create an overall design scheme.
The Tommy Stockel Arrangements are bewildering to look at.
